    I enjoy the hell out of Duck Tales and enjoyed Steven Universe, and both had elements of progressive social commentary that some would call woke,

    Just having said elements isn't automatically "woke garbage."

    But if it's used to dismiss critics as "bigots," overshadows the actual storytelling, etc., then it is.

    I have not played or seen anything Paper Mario related. What game should I begin with? And which games should I be aware of? :ooh:

    Super Paper Mario. Then go for the original, and ThebThousand Year Door. You can skip the rest

    IMO, just begin in release order: 64, TTYD, SPM, and maybe even Paper Jam (the closest to a true fourth entry, crossover or not).

    And yeah, skip Sticker Star; but maybe rent Color Splash.

    I thought using a women against super heavyweights was a fun challenge due to the weight detection.

    Case in point: the Special Challenge (where you had to beat The Great Khali with Mickie James).

    I don't know what you mean by "more personality." Do you mean flamboyant? People can be obnoxious and loud. People can be quiet, and that is a personality. Would you say that Pinkie Pie has more personality than Fluttershy?

    You're right; I wouldn't.

    But when I say "more personality," I mean -- e.g. -- Flanderization that backfires badly.

    When I think of simple characters done right, I can not think of better examples than Hunter X Hunter and the Silent Hill games. Hisoka from Hunter is an absolutely malevolent, murderous psychopath with almost no backstory (at the moment), yet he's one of the most beloved characters from the series because people like a villain who just...does what he does. Silent Hill 2's James Sunderland doesn't have much of a personality, yet he's one of the most memorable video game characters of all time because he's just such a beautifully crafted Everyman we can all relate to. 

    It's true that not every character needs personality, it's all about the writer's intent and whether or not what they intend works. In the example of Sombra though...I have to chime in a little something. Sombra's new incarnation in the show really doesn't have a personality, he's more or less a representation of the darkness in the world Twilight and her friends need to learn to stand up to and fight for themselves. Sombra's incarnation in the comics was, in my opinion, an example of "more personality" done right. They flesh out a backstory for him, give him a character conflict, have him learn a lesson, and emerge as a different character than what he once was. 

    Yeah.

    You know the old adage "quality over quantity"? This is more-or-less that.

  6. I always hear "He needs more personality," etc., about some characters.

    ...Because it worked so well for Link (The Legend Of Zelda), right?

    Samus Aran (Metroid)?

    Supreme Leader Snoke (Star Wars)?

    And, of course, King Sombra?

    ...Lesson: Don't just give them more personality; make sure it's the right personality.

    What do you think?

    That the LORD was able to make so much beauty in only 6 days

    And even then - He could've just done it all in a millisecond, but presumably chose to take His time because symbolism.


  8. Bowser, Wario, and Waluigi as the GTA V trio:

    Bowser = Michael. (Both are the planners and family men.)

    Wario = Trevor. (Both are the wild cards.)

    Waluigi = Franklin. (Both are the new guys trying to make names for themselves.)

    FiM skipped S6, and ended with the first half of S7 up to Perfect Pear, all that came after was the movie, Best Gift Ever, and Rainbow Roadtrip, which I consider the series finale

    Equestria Girls continued as usual though, but there was a weird year long gap between Rainbow Rocks and Legends of Everfree

      Reveal hidden contents

    After reading the bullshit I did in the leaks, I'm not touching anything with Josh Haber's name on it ever again

     

    For me - FIM went all the way to S8, then ended after BGE and RRT.

    As for EQG, the only thing that never happened was the Anon-A-Miss stuff.
